, republican governor chris christie. just six days out from the election. interesting for many reasons and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper wit

a fellow local, and that's chris christie, a governor who if you do what i do and still take your family to the boardwalk on weekends and seaside, point pleasant, it's a very good chance you'll see the governor of your state with his family as his parents took them there, because it's special to us, and he was saying he can't speak for all the privately owned places like this, a lot of the jersey shore, a lot of the boardwalks are a private concern. but boy, he wants to come back. this is part of the beating heart, the economic engine of the state of new jersey on down through delaware, maryland, on up through new york and new england. it's hard to imagine the east coast without a beach. the east coast without the jersey shore. >> brian, you're absolutely right. thank you, great reporting. don't forget, you can see him tonight. >>> is there any way power companies can keep their six million customers living in the dark satisfied with their service? president obama spoke to our next guest yesterday from the situation room about how to eliminate any bureaucratic roadblocks that delay the p
the election this is also being viewed through a political lens. governor chris christie, a romney surrogate, will show the president the destruction, while new york mayor michael bloomberg politely declined a visit. this morning the president got a substantial briefing on what's happening and the federal support that's being provided for the recovery. some are calling this a commander in chief moment. but at the very least, this hurricane has complicated a very close presidential race. take a look at the latest national polls of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an amer

new jersey governor chris christie on a tour of some of the areas hardest hit. we are also getting a better look this hour at what governor christie is calling the destruction too widespread for words. that includes long branch, 50 miles south of new york city. right now you're looking at a swimming pool, standby, full of debris from a building torn to shreds by wind and water. the sand stripped away and piled in the streets exposing beach heeds. we go south to spring lake, new jersey. that town is over 100 years old. a lot of folks go for vacation and the weekend that kind of thing. the longest portion of the boardwalk in the state of new jersey. you can see the remnants of it at the water line, the pounding surf tore off each and every board. further down the coastline there is total destruction in the beach community of seaside heights, home of an iconic amusement park, and now look at it. something about these images, something about the roller coaster, the ferris wheel in the ocean, it's just wrong. for generations families have spent their summers here, trace gallagher record
see the president of the united states shaking hands with chris christy. when they were in marine 1 and touring the shore line. someone had wrote romney. romney was a message that they got from marine one. >> election is not that far away. >> gretchen: meanwhile the widespread destruction for sandy is most expensive in history. people are slowly getting back to daily routines. six million remain without power and could be weeks before the lights are turned back on. and the death tollis up to 74 . that number expected to keep climbing as workers comb through rubble. battery park of new york and we'll have the latest. good morning to you . >> we are right here in battery park underpass here walking along the police line. can'tcan't get further . there is 50 fet water. the president is been asked to send in crews in to try to dry this out. we'll be with them later today. we can tell you thatiers jers is dealing with all sors of transportation issues as limp new york some of the subway systems will start to run at 6:00 today right around now it will get busy. we have live pictures for y
leadership, some bipartisanship, thanks to the new jersey governor, republican chris christie be being at his side for a couple of days. >> paul: i want to ask you, new jersey residents, and generally a fan of governor chris christie, what do you make of this embrace of the governor with the president? >> well, our colleague peggy noonan, says you want to keep your friends close, but your president closer. i think certainly, mr. christy is dealing with had an emergency and trying to get help as soon as possible. there is a sense that these kind of situations will make people turn and embrace big government, but you're already seeing a lot of of flaws in the federal response, fema not getting a lot of these generators that they promised online quickly, so, i don't see any kind of a national move toward bigger government as a result. >> paul: kim, the other big story this week is that the romney campaign has been expanding the field. the electoral field moving into pennsylvania with a very big ad buy much bigger than the obama campaign and even talking a little how the fact that minnesota could

the governor there, chris christie, came to loggerheads with the mayor, the democratic mayor of atlantic city because the governor said everyone clear out of the coastal towns including the famed and those prone to flooding, and the mayor essentially said, no, you don't have to, obviously the folks needed to be residued and they were vulnerable to the flood and it caused some problem between the two. what is if you are a citizen in a state where the governor, the mayor, might be arguing you might say the better part of valor is take the most cautious and safe stand, right? >>guest: not only the most cautious and safe but i would say this, the response to this disaster has been very good. it has been good. but when governor christie who is a great guy, and this mayor, who i don't know at all get into a spat that spat understoods to be done behind doors with one message sent to the public. at this time i encourage everyone and i am certain that mayor bloomberg could disagree because he thing he is in control of the city and he really is, the people ought to listen to the governor. let me tell y

today that new jersey governor chris christie was mitt romney's first choice for the vice presidential slot on his ticket, the story says romney paused his therebiations over of christie when he left for the olympics and he settled on paul ryan when he returned from london. we're not sure what happened in london. joining us in our war room to talk about this, karen finny msnbc political analyst and democratic national communications directory and chip saltsman. karen let's start there. how different would this campaign had been had chris christie been mitt romney's running mate instead of paul ryan? >> the strategist in me says it would have been very different but the american in me is glad to see that both men were able to do the job they were supposed to do this week and i'm sure residents of new jersey are grateful for that. >> chip what do you think? hurricane sandy aside what do you think? >> think these are great stories that's beyond inside baseball, inside the dugout stuff and it's always fun to speculate what if. craig, i was always under the impression you were governor romn

think that the hurricane and his leadership role, being seen with chris christie, you know, showing up with fema, how much do you think that may have had an impact, because it stopped whatever momentum mitt romney may have been enjoying. >> i would say i think the race is kind of upset. mitt romney got a bump off the first debate. by october 15th, the race had settled to where it was up until hurricane sandy. i point to the "washington post"/abc news, doing tracking polls every day about a week and a half now, the last two rolling tracks we've asked about president obama's job performance on sandy, 78% two days ago said excellent or good, 79% said excellent or good. yesterday. when you're dealing with the margins here, it can't hurt. i think the fact that the president got to be the president, kind of be bipartisan, to go up, look at things, that role, remember the people haven't decided yet, aren't partisans on either side. they tend to be independent on affiliated -- unaffiliated voters. who don't like that partisanship. for him to be with chris christie looking like they were workin
